Use painters tape ..little bits andvwrite the notes..after you realize it is cdefgabc  over and over and then a strong colired diff for the g and c will give u the geography of the psaltery...also mark the c and f sharps and the b flats as those are the most used

Hi..i play bp..just got into it..i own a 2 octave spring creek ps made by terry kirby from ohio..it is lovely...i also have a 3 octave baritone that is like 3 feet long...it is amazing but big...terry kirby just puts a thin piece of paper down the two area where the zither pins are and has the name written next to the pin..you could also put a red dot where the c is and a blue dot where the f is as on a harp...use a sticky dot  to know the geography of the strings..pam

2 newly made instruments from musicmakerz


Adventures with 'other' instruments...

Irene,,  yes they were a bit challenging ..esp putting the strings on the one..i just finished both of them this month...i tne the small one to c and the lg to d.   One thing to do on the olde is to play melody and shen u run out of notes go to the lower note and play it there...so if  you are playing the high e but the need to play the higher f and g go to the lower f and g and play them..it sounds pretty fine..i too play older songs on it
